PlayStation 4/Xbox One/Nintendo Switch: 2019 vs. 2020
(https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/241660/ps4xbons-2019-vs-2020/1/)

Around the Network

with Monster Hunter World, Shadow of The Colossus, God of War, Spiderman and now Red Dead Redemption AND with another price cut, aggressive marketing, price cuts for the holidays, PS4 will be the best selling video game console of 2018.



Will be interesting to see how this year does. Im going to guess 17-18 million, right around 2015/2016 levels.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

PS4 could be up for it's first month since MHW is releasing ... February is ok, March looks good with FC5 along with smaller scraping by like Yakuza 6, VC4 and Revenant Kingdom and GoW will go great with April ... Sony's lineup can be described as stable with high strength for 2018 ... (wondering when RDR2, Detroit, Spiderman will release in the first half or if they'll even make it)



Starting good and MH World should help especially with Japans sales, hopefully this year will beat last year.

If they can cut the price by $50 to $249, then have an extended $199 black Friday sale- I think they can hit close to 25 million this year. Sony severely underestimated the demand last black Friday. A Red Dead or God of War or Spider-Man bundle would sell gangbusters this holiday season at that price.

Spidey is rumored for Sept

Well damn, PS4 looking a lot more barren for Q2 and Q3 ... 

Kinda disappointing since Sony needed a hardware driver in those slow months ... 



Oops, didn't mean to do a double thread! XD
